Let’s just say you’re driving the car. And listening to the news while eating a dirty kebab, talking to your mum over loud speaker while planning your wedding inside your head. Simultaneously wondering whether old Aunt Mae would mind being seated next to your hill-billy-pot-smoking cousin, Dave. Pretty amazing right?
I can safely say that my team would rather have their teeth ripped from their mouths with a rusty knife much sooner than they would allow me to sit them in grey cubicles wearing stiff corporate attire on crazy deadlines with a strict no-laughing policy.
Putting two-day-old underwear on, inside out. Leaving the house with feta in your eyebrows and lipstick on your teeth. Spending your days with twelve too many empty coffee cups on your desk. Eating melted gelato and your kid’s teething stick you found on the floor for lunch at a quarter past four. Spending the entire week squeezing mayonnaise onto your toothbrush and trying to start your car with your leftover toast.
I like wine. Like, a lot. The guy at the bottle-o up the road is a sweet man, but he doesn’t understand me. Every time I go in there I grab the exact same bottle of Argentinian Malbec. Every time, he tries to sell me something new. Every. Time. He says, “Oh we’ve got this new Malbec in, you really must give it a go” and then he bangs on about fruity aromas, long legs, cherry notes and hints of burnt toast.
Let’s talk about the April Fool’s Day joke of the century. In 1994, a popular American news broadcaster reported that companies such as Apple, Pepsi, KFC and GAP were offering appealing discounts to teenagers who would tattoo their bodies with corporate logos.
The world is full of people who can wax lyrical about why they are so #blessed and #grateful to work for themselves. And on most days, I couldn’t agree more. I love my business! Most days. Then, of course, there are those other days.
Pop quiz. What is the goal of any content? To get it seen, read, loved and shared. Duh. Now let’s agree on another thing from the get go: creating killer content takes time, perseverance and loads of gusto. It’s a long, hard road, and to be honest, one that has no final destination. In order to reap […]
Some brands grow on you like a colony of E. Coli on a room temperature steak. Others however, lose their lustre and begin to fade as time goes on. A strong brand is one that evolves and keeps up with its environment.
I dropped out of uni at the age of 22, with zero degree, zero savings and zero experience. A little spark flared up inside of me that shouted, “Let’s start a design business!”. Before the rational side of my brain had a chance to frame up its cunning rebuttal, my automatic response was, without even thinking, “YES! Great idea!”. I was starring in my own Herbal Essence commercial, cheesy smile and slow motion hair flick included.
This post was written by the lovely Mercy Wolf (meditation teacher and life coach). Did you ever see the movie Wild? It’s the true story of writer Cheryl Strayed – played by Reese Witherspoon – who hikes the 4600 km Pacific Crest Trail on the west coast of America? My idea of heaven!!
There is a framed motivational poster hanging in the reception of the dentist. It reads, ‘Being positive in a negative situation is not naive. It’s leadership.’, in what looks like Lucida Calligraphy script, a font from my primary school heyday that I can’t help but look back with deep-seeded regret and disgust.
My first thought — Juicy! No, I’m not talking about that horrid clothing label circa early 2000s when for some ungodly reason the people of LA couldn’t get enough diamontes, candy pink and fake gold bling to satiate their cravings.
You know that saying, “you can’t see the forest through for the trees”? Well, same goes for business, except it’s more like you can’t see the Friday night rosé over the metaphorical mountain of unread emails lurking in your inbox. To a degree we love it, we need to be needed and feel the rush that a […]
I’ve learnt a lot from this phrase. Be it directly or conversely, I owe a lot of my achievements to my old friend do it right the first time. In a similar way to our buddy start as you wish to finish, I believe that it is so important to set up the right foundations before launching into something of great aptitude.
Shitty days bite you in the butt when you least expect it. You know those days? The ones where you somehow manage to sprinkle salt on your cereal, you can’t find that pesky right sock, you spill your coffee all over your phone and you arrive at work only to realise it’s Saturday?
Sometimes in life, you step in dog poo. And then sometimes in life, you stumble across a 5 dollar note laying next to the dog poo. This week, I’ve had the 5 dollar note kinda week. I’ve sailed through, made it to Friday alive and felt like I’ve simultaneously got shit done, AND had a smile on my dial. Bonza.
